Default Great feat with POTP Starscream



...see what I did there?

I wasn't happy with the original figure's clown shoes so dug around in my parts box for some replacements.

Turns out G1 seeker feet can slot right in the combiner port!

If you don't have a spare G1 seeker, the feet from the Universe/Classic mold can also fit.

It does make it a parts-former but it makes for a much more streamlined figure.

wow, old meets new! I don't have the figure, but I'll be opening an elita one at some point. I'm going to inspect.

Elita One's feet are more streamlined than Starscream's - I think you may like them as is.
BTW I transplanted the stickers from Starscream's original feet on to these new ones.

Wow, that custom modification is no mean feet. You could say Starscream is putting his best foot forward.

Personally, I am glad Snaketalesí creativity is not taking a backwards step.

Great improvement on an ordinary figure (IMO)!

Can't tip-toe around the fact the original oversized feet stunk. Points to you for making this figure so much better that I'm almost soled on getting him.

Seeing your Starscream foot mod almost makes me want to buy the figure...almost!

Awesome work though!
